The Home Of The Future: Year 1999 A.D.

This video from the Philco-Ford Corporation is a mid-1960s prediction of what technology would be like in the year 1999. Some of the predictions, like fingertip shopping, seem to be right on while others appear to have been pulled straight from Star Trek.

Note that the video portrays women as stay-at-home domestic goddesses and did not anticipate advances in gender equality in upcoming decades.
